Oddbods (2016– )

So he tries to play it cool and goes to extreme lengths (and lies) to avoid the spider, whilst saving face with his friends.
Slick's Dad shows up out of the blue, and, terrified that he'll discover what a messy party animal he is, Slick quickly pretends that Jeff's house is actually his and that Jeff is his butler. Jeff reluctantly agrees, but Slick's tendency to exaggerate and show off soon make this a thankless task for poor old Jeff. How long can they keep a lid on this secret, or will Slick get away with this ever-expanding lie?
